Invitation / Call for Papers: Sustainable Building Restoration and Revitalisation

31.01.2013
2. International Conference on Sustainable Building Restoration and Revitalisation – 2013

25th to 29th September 2013

Shanghai – China
Following the successful conference in 2008, we will hold the second session of the conference in Shanghai. We hereby invite experts and scholars in related fields to attend this conference and submit papers. During the International conference, there will be special training courses on historic building restoration.

Themes:
Topic I: Theory & Research
1. Research on guidelines and standards for sustainable building restoration.
2. Research in timber, masonry and earthen structures & restoration theories.
3. Traditional restoration techniques and innovative materials.

Topic II: Designs & Planning
1. Application of building physics in historic building conservation (energy saving, thermal insulation, moisture, acoustics, fire etc.).
2. Maintenance and evaluation of interior climate of historic buildings.

Topic III: Practice & Case-study
1. Case study on sustainable building restoration.
2. Restoration and maintenance techniques of rural areas.

Training courses & Company Workshops on innovative materials and technology
1. Design concepts for restoration by calculate-tools to describe the performance of the building before and after restoration
2 .Design concepts for building restoration include tests on site and in lab.
3. Application of class innovative materials for restoration.

Purpose:
The conference aims to promote research and application of the outcomes in the fields of historic building conservation, renovation and revitalisation at home and abroad by doing summary and reviews of experiences, to accelerate the application of novelty know how and innovative techniques to the management, renovation, utilization and maintenance of historic buildings as well as to strengthen in-depth dialogues and exchanges between professionals and practitioners.

Target groups:
Members of International Association for Science and Technology, research institutes, universities, government, engineers, architects, historical building preservation institutions, construction units, engineering companies, enterprises and associations.

Presentations:
Presentations should be closely connected to the above mentioned topics, attaching great importance to introducing new findings in building physics and building maintenance and restoration as well as reporting related research progress and developments; be focused on scientific fundamental theories and their consistency so as to promote the sustainability of construction quality and measures of restoration, which in turn, further facilitates the maintenance and preservation of buildings and monuments.

Abstract and presentation requirements:
The participants shall send their abstract (max. one A4 page) to the host committee via our conference website in Chinese or in English (deadline before 1st March 2013). The abstract should include following contents: the theme of the presentation, the name of the author, contact information and the outline of the presentation. Authors will be informed about further presentation requirements if the abstract is accepted. (The standard word-format you will find for download on our conference website)

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer ISE Develops Highly Compact, High Frequency DC/DC Converter for Aviation

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
